Faust, Becker to Star at CBT Men’s Club OscarFest


Movie mavens James Faust and Stephen Becker will be the guest speakers at the annual Congregation Beth Torah Men’s Club/Sisterhood lox-and-bagels OscarFest on Sunday, Feb. 5.

The Oscar edition of the monthly breakfast features discussion about the upcoming Academy Awards and the changing state of moviemaking in general.

Faust, Artistic Director of the Dallas International Film Festival, has served on juries and panels of film festivals around the world. “I’ve been in love with film since the day I snuck into a drive-in with my parents when I was 4 years old,” he told the website Art House Dallas.

Becker, a former arts editor at The Dallas Morning News, is senior producer of the popular KERA interview show “Think,” which airs on nearly 200 public radio stations around the country. As KERA’s resident film buff, he reports and opines about movies on the air and on its website.

The public is invited to the lox-and-bagels breakfast, which begins at 9:30 and costs $10, $5 for students. Congregation Beth Torah is located at 720 W. Lookout Drive in Richardson, near the crossroads of Bush Turnpike and Central Expressway.
